The stunning Brecon Beacons national park has four amazing reservoirs that the National Park has made accessible for paddlesport. We would like to invite you on a guided tour of the four. Previous paddling experience is not required to join us and enjoy the magnificent views (unless its misty).
Our tour is based from The Butchers Arms Pub and Bunk house in the village of Pontsticill at the dam end of Pontsticill reservoir. We provide a guided paddle on all four reservoirs, transport from and to the Butchers Arms plus journeys between, food and accommodation for 2 nights at the Butchers Arms Bunk house (evening drinks are not included)
Our first paddle will be the Usk Reservoir located in the upper Usk Valley, at 1,050 feet above sea level. It is located in the counties of Carmarthenshire and Powys. The boundary between the counties runs through the reservoir.
Beacons Reservoir (Welsh: Cronfa’r Bannau) is the northernmost of the three reservoirs in the Taff Fawr valley in South Wales. It was built by Cardiff Corporation Waterworks between 1893 and 1897, and the water is impounded by an earth dam with a clay core.
Pontsticill Reservoir (Welsh: Cronfa Pontsticill) or Taf Fechan Reservoir is a large reservoir on the Taf Fechan lying partly in the county of Powys and partly within the county borough of Merthyr Tydfil.
Into Pentwyn Reservoir (sometimes referred to as Dol-y-gaer Reservoir or Lake) which suffered major water losses after completion due to the presence of major fractures in the bedrock beneath its dam relating to the Neath Disturbance. A major geological fault which runs northeast to southwest through the area.
If you want to escape the sales, taking the decorations down.
